A Filipino library has made it to the front page!

"Library rescues works of women writers," by Elizabeth Lolarga (Philippine Daily Inquirer, 22 March 2005), is about the Ateneo Library of Women's Writings (ALIWW), which is actually one of the special collections in the care of the Rizal Library.

Edna Z. Manlapaz conceptualized ALIWW as

a place "where women writers can be invited, threatened, cajoled and flattered into donating papers for the use of scholars and readers." ...She credited the Jesuits for "seeing the vision, sharing it and literally giving us a room of our own" on the third floor of the Rizal Library on the Ateneo campus at Loyola Heights, Quezon City.
The only problem I have with the article is that the library does not seem to have a librarian, only founders and directors. Maybe someday...
